Before starting Skratspaper, I worked as a photographer for a STEM high school--capturing the excitement, enthusiasm, and energy of students as they delved into learning at school-based events. (My favorite event to document was the project learning-based "NASA Hunch" program, where students delve into designing prototypes and software for use in space exploration.) Now, I work with clients to create images that represent the fullness and beauty of the most precious parts of their lives. My specialty is in capturing the soul of my subjects in portraits and the love of couples in wedding or engagement shoots.
I enjoy being able to provide them photos that will act as a lasting memory for them. Whether it's their wedding day, yearly family trip, or senior portrait, capturing those moments and hearing how much they value the images as a memory is without a doubt what I like doing the most. I love getting to help people in that way, and to be able to capture memories for generations to come to look at.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done car photography, food photography, portraits, engagements, weddings, product photography, etc. But what, I think, has made them all special is the personal relationships that you build from them and just getting to interact with, genuinely, awesome people.
A fun fact about this photographer
I've had the most random assortment of jobs. I was a studio singer, after school care teacher, math tutor, a DirecTV in store salesman, and a lighting board operator for an Elvis impersonator...just to name a few lol.
